Doornboom Opstal Restorasie en Genealogie

On Saturday 14 July 2018, Henk Rall gave us a very interesting talk about the restoration process and of the genealogical research of the Doornboom Opstal (Fourie Huis) in Heidelberg, Cape.

Henk visited the deeds office and traced all the previous owners.  He presented his findings as well as some of the genealogy associated with the building which also happens to be the oldest house in Heidelberg.

Previous owners included Fouries, Munniks, van Rensburgs, Esterhuizens and Steyns.
